NO BALLS WERE DEFLATED IN THE BREAKING OF THIS RECORD
8/29/15

After 13 shows over nine tours, Kenny Chesney had his biggest weekend ever at Gillette Stadium, and set a new record at the home of the New England Patriots. With 60,082 fans on Friday and 60,124 fans on Saturday, Chesney put 120,206 people into the stadium where the No Shoes Nation was named. He first played Gillette Stadium in 2005, and recorded part of his Kenny Chesney Live album in 2006. His relationship with the fans who come every year to the Foxoboro, Massachusetts venue also inspired the 8-time Entertainer of the Year to start the Spread the Love Fund to benefit the amputee victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Carrie Underwood, "Smoke Break"
Hey, we've got all our vices. 19/Arista Nashville superstar Underwood kicks it into overdrive on this stirring ode to occasional indulgence, the lead track from her forthcoming album (due 10/23); it's now lighting up at radio. Speaking of which, we could stand to smoke something ourselves right about now.
